There are many ways that you can relax, but first you need to know that relaxation is needed for both the body and the mind. If only one is catered for, then there will be a resulting imbalance.
Over the last two decades there has been an exponential increase in the number and variety of methods, and potions, etc offering to relax you. Some are genuine and others are through and through scams, existing only to take your money.
First be aware that simply living an orderly and balanced lifestyle goes a long way to enjoying relaxation. A walk in the park, a bit of deep breathing and some stretching are very simple yet effective ways to relax. For a deeper and longer term effect you can attend a health farm or holiday in a countryside environment.
Although there are methods available to relax the mind and different methods to relax the body, because the two are so connected, the relaxation of the mind also relaxes the body and the relaxation of the body also relaxes the mind.
Specifically for the mind, you could try meditation, visualisation techniques and NLP to name only a few. The aim is to induce a calmer level of thinking which invariably means that you will need to entertain positive thoughts. By doing so your mind will feel relaxed. Your body’s muscles will also start to relax.
Specifically for the body, you could try any one of a variety of massage therapies. Herbal massage is known to be particularly effective. There is also reflexology, a hot bath, gentle exercises, yoga and so the list goes on.
The key is to find a way that works for you and then to stick to it so that you have a way of mentally and physically relaxing built into your daily routine.
Perhaps the last thing to mention is to try and avoid the things, places or whatever it is that really makes you stressed. Then it’s easier to remain relaxed.
